The pounds 50 prize goes to Robert Bell of Edinburgh. He tells me that when Humphrey Bogart, while filming Beat The Devil in 1953, was in a car crash that affected his speech, director John Huston hired a young Peter Sellers to record some dialogue post-production. His mimicry was so good it was undetectable and was good practice for voicing the chimps in the first PG Tips ads three years later.

Would you like me to settle a dispute, answer a question that's bugging you, or you'd like to challenge me for the pounds 50 Slam Sam prize that's on offer every week (you must be able to prove your answer and only the challenger is eligible for the prize). Keep sending letters to Showbiz Sam, Daily Record, One Central Quay, Glasgow, G3 8DA. Sorry, but I can't give personal replies.

Gordon Stuart of Tranent sets this week's baffler for me when he asks: "Which famous actress gained a massive 22lbs in just 22 to get in shape for a film role?" That's a serious amount of shape...

You're a winner when I print your verified answer, Gordon.
